STORE OPERATIONS

Increase your efficiency and spend more time on what really matters – with the help of electronic shelf labels

Become hyper-efficient with boosted productivity and best-in-class task management

The biggest single process in a retail store today is replenishment of the shelves – especially in grocery. On top of that, you’re expected to be hyper-efficient in delivering online fulfillment, such as Click & Collect orders, and actively help guide customers in the store. The extremely multi-faceted use of an electronic shelf label system allows you to save precious time and excel in the tasks that matter the most. This gives you more time and money to focus on what really makes a difference.

Shelf Replenishment

The biggest single process in a store (especially grocery) is replenishment of the shelves. A typical supermarket puts up tens of thousands of products on the shelves every day. It is a very time-consuming task and also surprisingly error prone. If the employee does not check the price tag (or if the planogram is wrong) properly there is a risk that the product ends up at the wrong place or hides the correct product. The consequences are that the right product might not be replenished with correspondingly reduced sales and that the stock levels end up wrong on both the correct and the wrong product.

Click & Collect

The online revolution has led to a new problem – fulfillment. When a shopper orders online she expects to get the goods delivered quickly, correctly and at a low cost (if any). This poses a significant problem, especially for grocery where cold-chains have to be maintained. A common solution is to use the existing store network as the local warehouse to fulfill the online orders. For the stores this means a new revenue stream, but also a new and quite heavy task. A typical grocery order can take 15-30 min to pick and with hundreds of orders per day the store is suddenly faced with having to hire a lot of people, which is both costly and not always easy.

In-Store Inventory Management

Most retailers today use automatic ordering to supply the stores. Due to many reasons the process is not fail proof and it is common to have inaccurate stock levels. Consequences are that the store either has too little or too much inventory of a given product. Too little means lost sales, too much means tied up capital as well as a risk to never sell all of the stock.
